Trantec Solids Handling Limited

Trantec Solids Handling Limited is a leading manufacturer of Materials Handling Equipment, more specifically of machinery aimed at metering, dosing, and filling applications.

Our machines can be found in operation worldwide, with customers ranging from small businesses, universities, and local manufacturers, to blue-chip firms and multinationals (including many household names).

With fine-tuned design and accuracy at the forefront of product development, Trantec’s Metering Feeders and Flexible Screw Conveyors offer handling solutions for a wide range of dry bulk solids and powders.

Our Flexible Screw Conveyors are often combined with our Metering Feeders to provide a complete handling solution. A Flexible Screw Conveyor will typically transport powders from storage or tipping facilities, such as an FIBC Discharger, Sack Tip Station or Hopper, to refill the Feeder automatically.

Trantec’s History…

Our first Volumetric Feeder was launched in 1997. The following year, we released our first Loss In Weight model.

Since then, we have continued to do what we do best; design robust, modular, and exceptional machinery. Adding new and innovative features to our Metering Screw Feeders, our focus is to meet the needs of the constantly evolving Solids Handling Industry.   

Trantec’s range of Powder Dosing Machines was specifically developed for the Food and Pharmaceutical industries, recognising their specific needs and unique legislation.

Our ‘Enhanced Range’ includes GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) elements, unique easy-clean features, and metal detectable components throughout.
